Found this on a once pro-Dem website (it’s now infested with Leftbaggers) … it was posted by ‘Writer’ …. love, love, love it:

Mr. President, just quit and become the labor movement leader some progressives want you to be

When progressives voted for you, they wanted to see real change. And that change was in the form of a complete evisceration of all forms of neo-liberal capitalism and neo-conservatism that has defined American economic and foreign policy for the last 30 years. They want that history overturned, like a penalty call on a football field. Snap! Just like that. They don’t want you to talk to Republicans. Heck they certainly don’t want you to have any discussions or dealings with Republicans at all, because that will mean that you might not dramatically overturn 30 or so years of political history. And they will settle for nothing less.

They want changes for the worker, and they believe corporations have no place in American capitalism. Some, I believe, would like to see corporations eliminated altogether, for they pose a mortal danger to communitarian ideals. And although they desperately need a public voice – a leader – to press for real social and economic change, instead of waiting for the right person, they expect a democratically elected president, working within a democratic system, to radicalize.

So seriously, Mr. President, why try to please progressives at all? Just quit. Just quit and pick up a bullhorn and become the labor leader that they seek. They need a voice, and no one else has stood up. The idea of an organic intellectual is lost to them – they want to go straight to the top. And that person is YOU.
